Your light was far too short

But shined ever so brightly

Your loving concern for others

Was so very apparent

Your daring love of adventure

Was to the core inherent

This world lost a shining star

While Heaven gained an asset

Play for the Angels your guitar

Tell your tales of life on Earth

While those left with sweet remorse

Remember your life truly and fondly

For a man that was pure of heart

And lived his life dedicated and fully.
